Khiron branded EU GMP medical cannabis will soon be available in Germany for prescription by doctors and dispensation in pharmacies.

Tejinder Virk, President of Khiron Europe, commented: “This is a major milestone for our company.

The supply of EU GMP medical cannabis to Germany will be fully supported by the Company’s global medical education team, led by Dr. Maria Fernanda Arboleda, Khiron’s International Director for Medical Services.

She completed a Spine-Regional Anesthesia Fellowship at the McGill University Health Center and a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in Supportive Cancer Care and Medical Cannabis, at the Department of Oncology, McGill University, and at Santé Cannabis, a leading specialized cannabis clinic in Canada.

Franziska Katterbach, Managing Director & Chief Legal Officer for Khiron Europe based in Frankfurt, commented: “Germany continues to be the European leader in medical cannabis, with other countries observing and adapting to the German regulatory model. The market is also differentiated with its large proportion of patient prescriptions fully reimbursed through insurance.”
